Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho is set for Wrestle Kingdom 12

Everything was going smoothly at New Japan’s recent Power Struggle event. Kenny Omega defeated Beretta when out of nowhere something amazing happened.

The match is officially booked for NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 on January 4th and everyone is losing their minds about it as they should be.

People are already calling Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega the match of the year for next year even though the event is just under two months away. Fans are excited and as the event draws closer we can only imagine how heavy the hype machine is going to push these two pro wrestling megastars.

My mind is officially blown. Chris Jericho has always been known for his supreme surprises and networking prowess, but this is taking it to another level. I just wonder how this might affect his standing with WWE. But in all reality, who cares? Because Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho is happening at Wrestle Kingdom 12.

    Do you work the ring?? No.. Then you are a mark too so sorry!!

    Well at 46 yrs old I wouldn’t be to surprised if Chris hangs up his boots soon. Although it would be great and I agree he has had one of the greatest runs of any wrestler ever. However age catches us all and Chris enjoys helping younger talent get over. That being said when he does return don’t expect major title runs or epic long lasting fueds. He will be used in the same way as his last a few appearances.

    Yeah I hope he comes back and gets a good wwe or universal title run, seems as of late he’s been putting younger talent over but come on man its y2j one of the greatest in ring performers next to hbk. He deserves a good heel run. And some good fueds against guys like Samoa joe, balor, aj styles(again),Shane o’mac (can’t remember if they had a rivalry back in old wwe days) seth Rollins and brock lesnar

    What’s he gonna do? Give Jericho a Hadoken for a pinfall? F**king can’t stand Omega. Sorry marks.

    Kenny Omega seriously needs to get that metal growth looked at.

  • Buzzkiller73

    Epic match! hard to book who goes over?? Omega needs this win. IMO

    Chris hasn’t been under contract with Vince for many years. Their deals are done by word and handshake Jericho comes and goes as he pleases in the WWE just like other hall of famers such as Kane (Glen Jacobs) the Deadman and the Rock. These guys have earned the right to do as they please and Vince is more than accommodating. Don’t be surprised to see Chris back after all his tour dates and current business with Fozzy is wrapped up.

    This is unreal. As a guy also hailing from Manitoba, this bout means something else.

    i’m guessing Jericho is no longer under contract with WWE hence why the Cruise of Jericho is featuring ROH and NJPW talent and now he wrestling Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in the battle of Winnipeg native sons.
